    Nearly got this Vista Home Premium looking closely to my XP Pro but can't
    seem to find a way to customize the Windows Explorer Menu bar as I have
    always done with Windows. I like to have the Copy, Cut and Paste icons

    Absolutely the MOST used tool in all Microsoft so please don't tell me that
    this new version File Explorer can not be customized! This could be the end
    of the road for this OS for my household.

  2. there is only one way to do this using a third party add on
    see here

    after you install the addon, you must install the plugin for the addon, that
    you can see here

    FileTools plugin pack

    pack of Toolbar buttons.
    (Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Copy To Folder, Move To Folder, Undo, Send To
    Parent, Properties.)
    'Send To Parent' works by keyboard shortcut even if the button is not
    enabled in Toolbar.

    I cut and paste hundreds of times a day but I don't have those icons in
    any menu bars. In fact I don't have ANYTHING in my menu bars, I prefer
    a Windows95 no-bullshit menu bar with just the path in the top of the

    I just right-click and then select copy/paste or use the keyboard
    shortcuts - ALT-C / ALT-P.

    Any good to you?

  4. Huh? So do I, but it's..

    CTRL + X for Cut
    CTRL + C for Copy
    CTRL + V for Paste

    and has been since the Mac introduced these shortcuts in the mid-80's, as
    well as various others, although Windows still maintains some of the various
    ones introduced in popular DOS apps, like ALT + F4 for Close/Quit, when CTRL
    + W is the Mac standard.
